Book: Healthcare from the Trenches

American medicine, once envied and emulated around the world, has transformed into an oppressive, burdensome system for both doctors and patients whose failings must be exposed if there is any hope for a solution; an insider account.

About the Book

“Healthcare fromn the Trenches” is an honest and candid account of the challenges and barriers facing those who provide, and receive, healthcare in an increasingly complex and bureaucratic system. The book counts on the additional testimonial of more than 25 contributors, whether physicians, therapists, industry professionals and even patients in order to paint a broader story.
Section 1 details the typical struggle and hardships that face any physician during well over a decade of education and training with the author providing heartfelt, and often colorful, anecdotes which describe his journey as typical of the process.
Once the reader understands the long road to becoming a fully trained physician, Section 2 hits the reader with multiple chapters that describe the constant challenges which a physician must now face in the guise of diverse categories of obstacles: Government, large healthcare systems, insurance industry and the legal barriers that one must overcome simply to fulfill the role as healer.
Section 3 shares the role that society plays in much of these issues, showing how many frivolous societal pursuits seemingly take precedence over what we should value the most- our health.
